To Renovate, or Not To Renovate?

Do you watch those home renovation shows on HGTV?  The homeowners can get a little fancy with their improvements to their homes, and they look amazing, but do those improvements sell a home? 

When I owned a home a few years ago, I made a few improvements to it before I had to put it on the market, and I sold it for a slight profit at the worst possible time to put a home on the market.  I guess those improvements I chose to make were the right ones… painting the walls neutral colors, new carpet in the bedrooms and the hallway, laminate flooring in the living room and granite countertops in the kitchen. 

Homeowners tend to overdo it with expensive renovations and very taste specific decorating touches.  Click below to see which types of renovations to ignore:
